Much was made of the Pibow’s “ventilation” holes on the base layer which happen to be compatible with Lego:
In March 2013 I bought a Pibow Modela for use with Lego projects, excellent. I enthused about the Pibow’s suitability for Lego projects at PyCon Raspberry Jam 2013, and in my blog post which continues to get several hundred hits a week:
In the last month I’ve ordered the Model B Coupé, the Model B+ Coupé and the Pibow Rainbow, but none of these have Lego holes . I emailed support and was told “We’re looking at designing a lego compatible base at the moment but I’m afraid its not ready yet. Keep an eye on the store though and it should hopefully be available soon.”
Please can we have a date for the return of Lego base holes, and please can we be told how people who’ve bought Pibow cases without holes can obtain a replacement base layer once available?
I do love Pimoroni but I can’t help but feel I’ve been sold something that doesn’t match the advertising. The base holes make all kinds of mounting much, much easier - especially with Lego but also with basic cable ties.
